SSSD-May- A Different kind of card--TeePee card

Here we go guys. I think you'll like this one. I followed directions for one and the card is too huge for my liking so I am cutting back on the ones you will be making. Let's get started. We are going to start with 3- 5" squares of card stock all the same color. Score each one from corner to corner.
                                                                      Fold on score

                                               Put adhesive from one corner to the center on 2.

                              Now watch my photos carefully for placement. Lay #1 on top of #2.

                                         Now add #3. Look at the photo does yours look like this.

Now we are going to add designer paper.  You will nee 2- 5 5/8" squares. Now cut those in half going from corner to corner.  Attach 3 of the pieces on the card base as in the photo.

Now when you pick up the 2 loose ends you have 1 with paper on it and 1 is plain.  Take the one with paper and place it on top of the plain panel.

Holding this together you need to use a Crop o dile if you have one or a good paper punch to make a whole through all layers.

                                                           This is how that should look.

                                      Put a length of ribbon through the hole and tie in a bow.

                                                                    Decorate--here's mine

To mail you need to untie the bow and lay it flat like this. You are going to need a 6x9 size envelope to mail to your partner.  Have fun.
